Thursday, November 29, 2012
We've had a very busy week so far and some of the games arriving this week have been waiting in the wings for far too long! Miner Wars, LEGO Lord of the Rings and more are here at last and ready to engage your mind, your fingers and sometimes, your funny-bone.
Miner Wars 2081 is a 6DOF action-survival space-shooter simulation-game set in the year 2081, 10 years after the destruction of all planetary objects in the Solar System.
You operate an advanced mining ship in a fully destructible and open-world environment, which remains persistent as you complete missions or play online with others. Realism and survival are key aspects of gameplay. Inventory and the way you use resources such as fuel, ammunition, oxygen, ore, and weapons are important when surrounded by dozens of warring factions.

Based on The Lord of the Rings motion picture trilogy, LEGO® The Lord of the Rings follows the original storylines of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, taking players through the epic story events reimagined with the humor and endless variety of LEGO play.
You shall pass here.

Players find themselves engulfed in Danaan’s fight for survival as their home world of Amorra is overrun by cruel and bloodthirsty ice demons. These strange creatures, also known as the Shangur, seem to consist only of snow and ice and are slowly transforming the world into an icy wasteland. More than anything else, the Shangur seem to be like a race of huge insects. Like some horrific ant colony that is interested in more than merely developing its nest and providing food for the production of replacement workers – they have come to kill.
